Welcome to your job of the week e-mail networking newsletter for professional communicators.  JOTW is not just for people looking for jobs, but this free newsletter swerves as a forum for all communicators to share advice, news, information and the unusual with other professionals around the world.  As a cooperative network, JOTW abides by the principals of cooperation, and that is we all contribute as well as benefit.  Ask yourself, “What have I contributed lately?”

Many people get this newsletter forwarded to them, and they ask me if they might be added to the list.  The answer is yes, but to do so, send a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

Many people inform me their address is changing, and ask me to update the Topica database so they will continue to get their JOTW newsletter.  If I have said this once, I’ve said it a thousand times:  I cannot do this for you.  You must do it yourself.  Please send a blank e-mail from your old address to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com.  Then, send a blank e-mail from your new address to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi Ed,

I’ve been reading your letter for years now, so it is way beyond time to submit a one paragraph pitch. I am so grateful for the opportunity.

Simplifying the complex:
 
I am a multi-faceted writer/editor/PR director/journalist specializing in healthcare practice and regulation and offering a full range of services from press releases and articles to white papers and strategic communications campaigns. I am looking for a full-time or contract position that makes use of my knowledge, writing ability, and strong contact base.

With some 20 years in the business, I view the issues from both the micro and the macro level. I write convincing press releases and develop campaigns that move people to action because I know the broader context. I know how to translate complex science and health policy materials into compelling articles that simplify and dramatize the human side. Looking for someone who can create a website detailing the physician, nurse, and patient view of kidney dialysis? For international press coverage of your latest findings? For someone who has worked for or written about nearly every healthcare stakeholder? Explained the complexities of generic biologics? The impact of FDA regulations? Photographed and written a prize-winning article on kidney transplant? Covered medical meetings on the latest cancer treatments? I have done all this–successfully. I work best in teams, considering the views of stakeholders and planning for the optimum publicity—the kind that changes minds and promotes action.

I seek a full-time or contract position. I am eager to begin. Please contact me at jlowenbach@comcast.net, and I will send you a resume and phone contact information.

***  JOTW Trivia Question:

In 1970, three groups appeared on the BBC TV show Tops of the Pops.  They were Edison Lighthouse, White Plains and Brotherhood of Man.  What did these three groups have in common, and why did this appearance get them “blacklisted by the BBC?”

Answer below.

***  From Shonali Burke, ABC:

Hi Ned –

Happy belated birthday – did you do something fun? I was having one of those “fun” days trying to get back from the midwest… enough said. Anyway – I hope you had a good time!

We have a great program coming up in March… would you post it to JOTW? Thank you so much!

JOTW-ers in the metro-DC area and anyone who is plagued, perplexed or possessed by measurement issues – don't miss IABC/Washington's March chapter meeting: Practical Approaches to Generating and Demonstrating Communication ROI, featuring Mark Weiner, president of Delahaye.

Weiner will lead a discussion on the state-of-the-art techniques that can be used to link an organization's marketing communications and measurement activities to the bottom line and return-on-investment… because the first step in demonstrating and generating a positive return on your marketing/communications investment is establishing a process to measure its impact on your organization. If you have are a professional with more than five years of experience in public relations, communications and/or marketing fields from corporations, agencies, not-for-profit and government, you will not want to miss this engaging presentation from one of the thought leaders in our field.

The event will take place on Thursday, March 8, 2007, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Tivoli Restaurant, Arlington, Va. (easily accessible by Metro, but your registration will also include free parking). For more information and to register, please visit http://www.iabcwashington.org/calendar/event_070308.html

***  Can you check to make sure it’s your fault?

Ned:
 
Greetings. I don't seem to regularly get JOTW anymore. Sometimes I get the full newsletter (which is terrific!!), then sometimes I just get a notification that it has been posted … and I can never seem to access it successfully that way. Sometimes a few weeks go by and I don't get anything at all.
 
The problem may well be on my end but if there's any way to check, and somehow put me on the list to always receive the entire newsletter (not just the link) that would be great.
 
Keep up the outstanding work. You are a huge credit to this field.

Congratulations on your morphing from being the Saint of Job Hunters, to being Good Ol' Ned.  I hope you do very, very well at it.  (You still get many blessings in my book.)
 
But I'm afraid I fell off the distribution list on Mondays.  Do you distribute?  Where do I find the JOTW if not getting it from you?
 
Miss ya much!

 *** Trivia question:

In February 1970, singer Tony Burrrows became the first and only person to appear on BBC Television's Top Of The Pops fronting three different acts in one show: Edison Lighthouse (who were number one that week), White Plains, and Brotherhood of Man. He sang “Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes); “My Baby Loves Lovin’” and “United We Stand.”   Afterwards he was told that he would be unofficially blacklisted from the programme as listeners might think it was a “fix”, with his appearing so often.  Now you are thinking, yeah, that voice sounded familiar on those songs, so imagine the same guy singing lead vocals on the 1970s hit “Gimme Dat Ding,” by the Pipkins.  That was him, too.  Or the 1974 hit “Beach Baby” by First Class.  Same guy.
